The advice is always to put the grippiest tyre on the rear, as for most, understeer is far easier to get back into shape than chronic oversteer.

Hindsight is wonderful, so you probably wanted to rotate a while ago.  I'd still do so, putting to one side the money you were going to spend now, so its slightly less painful when you have to buy a set of 4.

Perhaps, and probably at higher speeds, but IME I'd rather lose the back end than the front and have the rubber on the front to steer into the slide.:y

Your not wrong. Although  I recently had four brand new Accelleras fitted to the Omega. Also picked up a brand new pair of Acellerra Alphas 205/6015 for the rear of the 190 for 60.  :)
